  • The Washington Post Quietly Drops ‘Bombshell’ About FBI’s Trump Mar-A-Lago Raid Days After Midterm Election

    It was a Nuclear Hoax. The Biden administration’s unprecedented raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence is shaping up to be one of the most egregious abuses of power that has ever been committed by a sitting president. It is now nearly indisputable that it was a politically motivated raid over a paperwork dispute tantamount not only to blatant election interference into the 2022 midterms, but also a pre-emptive salvo on Biden’s presumptive presidential rival in the 2024 election. The FBI’s raid at the behest of the National Archives and Records Administration has not yielded the “nuclear secrets” that...

    There is nothing funnier than watching leftist Punchinellos beclown themselves over the latest “We’ve got Trump NOW!” hijinks. Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out? I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as...

    Prosecutors in New York do not plan to criminally charge Rudy Giuliani in connection with a probe into his interactions with Ukrainian figures, they revealed in a letter to a judge Monday in what a lawyer for Giuliani declared a “total victory.” They said they made the decision after a review of evidence resulting from raids on his residence and law office in April 2021. Federal prosecutors were investigating whether Giuliani’s dealings with figures in Ukraine in the run-up to the 2020 election required him to register as a foreign agent. Prosecutors said a grand jury probe that led to...

    After FBI agents raided the home of ABC News producer James Gordon Meek’s home last spring, a report in Rolling Stone floated the possibility that the sweep could have been related to his work as a journalist. However, new information reported by The Daily Beast suggests the raid was unrelated to his journalistic pursuits. Mr Meek’s home was raided by the FBI, but the agency’s reasons for the search were unknown to the public. According to Rolling Stone, "independent observers believe the raid is among the first - and quite posible, the first - to be carried out on a...

    Federal prosecutors are pressuring key Trump aides to testify against the former president in the Mar-a-Lago raid case. According to the New York Times, prosecutors are pressuring Kash Patel, a Trump loyalist, and Walt Nauta, the Trump aide who moved boxes at Mar-a-Lago, to testify. Biden’s corrupt Justice Department is building an obstruction case against Trump based on his aides moving boxes of his presidential records after the former president received a subpoena for the classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago. According to leaks to the Washington Post and New York Times, Trump staffers moved Mar-a-Lago boxes AFTER Trump was issued...

    James Gordon Meek is an Emmy Award-winning journalist who worked as a correspondent and producer for ABC News. He is articulate, focused, and relentless in his work as an investigative journalist, and exposed the coverup behind the death of four U.S. Special Forces soldiers in Niger, Africa in 2017. This is not Meek’s first time calling out the United States Military and their lack of accountability, along with the lack of leadership existent in our current brass. Over the last year, Meek has been promoting his Hulu documentary, 3212 Un-Redacted, where he documents this Niger expose and its fallout.In discussing...

    Some of the classified documents recovered by the FBI from former US President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home and private club included highly sensitive intelligence regarding Iran and China, people familiar with the matter told The Washington Post on Friday. If shared with others, the people said, such information could expose intelligence-gathering methods that the United States wants to keep hidden from the world. At least one of the documents seized by the FBI describes Iran’s missile program, according to these people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation. Other documents described highly sensitive intelligence work...

    Acclaimed national security reporter James Gordon Meek hasn’t been seen since an April FBI raid on his apartment just outside of Washington, DC. Former colleagues at ABC News, a co-author on his forthcoming book, and even his neighbours say they have no idea where the documentary producer has been. The worrying disappearance raises questions over whether the Biden administration has targeted or arrested the journalist, a major test of the president, who made a point last year to put new safeguards in place protecting reporters during leak investigations. **SNIP** His co-author on a forthcoming book, Operation Pineapple Express: The Incredible...

    Corrupt Justice Department prosecutors believe they have enough evidence to bring obstruction charges against Trump. According to The Wall Street Journal, the Trump prosecutors have seen enough evidence to bring obstruction charges, “but the path to an actual indictment is far from clear.” Bloomberg reported: A group of Justice Department prosecutors believe there is sufficient evidence to charge Donald Trump with obstruction of justice, but the path to an actual indictment is far from clear. The team that’s part of the classified records probe has not yet made a formal recommendation to Attorney General Merrick Garland, who would ultimately approve...

    Rolling Stone ^ | BY TATIANA SIEGEL | OCTOBER 18, 2022
    AT A MINUTE before 5 a.m. on April 27, ABC News’ James Gordon Meek fired off a tweet with a single word: “FACTS.” The network’s national-security investigative producer was responding to former CIA agent Marc Polymeropoulos’ take that the Ukrainian military — with assistance from the U.S. — was thriving against Russian forces. Polymeropoulos’ tweet — filled with acronyms indecipherable to the layperson, like “TTPs,” “UW,” and “EW” — was itself a reply to a missive from Washington Post Pentagon reporter Dan Lamothe, who noted the wealth of information the U.S. military had gathered about Russian ops by observing their...

    Another day, another leak to the Washington Post. A Trump employee told the FBI they moved boxes of documents at Mar-a-Lago on the former president’s orders, according to the Washington Post. Apparently only Trump isn’t allowed to take possession of his own presidential records. Barack Obama was never harassed or accused of violating the Espionage Act for storing highly classified documents at a warehouse. According to The Post, the claim from Trump’s worker is corroborated by security footage. Trump’s worker was told to move the boxes after the former president received a subpoena in May for classified documents. According to...

    A judge ruled on September 29 that federal agents who raided 1,400 safe-deposit boxes in March 2021 at a private vault company did not violate search and seizure laws, court documents shared with Insider show. A lawsuit filed in August alleged the FBI and the US attorney's office in Los Angeles obtained warrants against US Private Vaults in Beverly Hills, California, by concealing critical details from the judge who approved them. In his ruling, District Court Judge R. Gary Klausner found no impropriety in the way the government got or executed the warrants for the raid. He dismissed the class-action...

    Gregg Jarrett ^ | Published 2 days ago | By Gregg Jarrett
    A former president can keep whatever presidential records he wants and the government has no authority to seize them. Period.That was the Department of Justice’s legal opinion a decade ago. It was a conclusion shared by both the National Archives and a U.S. District Court in Washington D.C. On that basis, ex-president Bill Clinton was allowed to maintain custody of whatever he wanted, including allegedly classified audio tapes that he stored in his home.Fast forward to August 8, 2022 when Attorney General Merrick Garland ordered a team of FBI agents to raid and forcibly seize presidential records from the home...

    Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), and Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) warned us about Kristen Clarke. Cruz called the radical lawyer “completely unfit to serve,” but serve she does as the Biden Administration’s chief of the civil rights division of the Department of Justice (DOJ). Her department is where equal justice now goes to die. Clarke considers her calling in Biden’s Justice Department one of score-settling for past decisions, holding contemporaries responsible for historical injustices, and chasing ghosts of the past. She greenlit the federal case against Mark Houck, a Pennsylvania Catholic pro-life author, whose seven children screamed for mercy...
